Robert Service has always been my favorite poet. In fact he's vertually the only poet I read.
I like his stuff because it's about hardships and overcoming harsh places. It's about being loyal to your pardner.
You might remember The Cremation Of Sam McGee and The Shooting Of Dan McGrew.
He was an ambulance driver in the First World War and his brother was killed in that war so he knew about the sufferings of soldiers.
His poem, Flourette, is one of the most touching I've ever read. I encourage you to read it. It has just a smattering of French in it but you can clear that up with an on-line translater such as Bable Fish.
